Yakhtennaya railway platform (Russian: Платфо́рма Я́хтенная) is a railway platform in Saint Petersburg, Russia, that opened in the 1990s. All trains that pass through this station stop at this station.

History[edit]

Shunting loop 2 verst[edit]

Originally the Joint-stock company of the Prinorskaya St.-Peterburg-Sestroretsk railway constructed Shunting loop 2 verst. This shunting loop was opened on July 12, 1894, concurrent with the opening of the railway between Novaya Derevnya and Lakhta (the first stage of the Primorskaya line).[1]

Flooding and closure[edit]

Сatastrophic flooding of September 23, 1924, seriously damaged the tracks that formed Shunting loop 2 verst. The shunting loop was dismantled and by 1925 did not exist any more.[1][2]

Current station[edit]

In the 1980s, housing construction began in the area. The current station was built to serve the residents. The station was named 13th km until February 1999 when it was renamed Yakhtennaya, after the street on which it is built.
